What a wonderful painting. I love the setting, and the mood. It suits Poe very well. May he rest in peace now with his big "slices of death" lol

Ahhh Poe! Meu favorito <3
Recentemente ganhei uma versão de capa dura de O Gato Preto e agora dou de cara com isso.
Adorei a iluminação e o céu...o ar soturno que eles provocam deu todo o charme da peça <3

Very nice portrait, I like the face a lot, you captured him well. The shoulders seem wrong somehow, but that could be intentional, I wouldn't know. I think the moon and darkness is a super choice for a portrait of Edgar. Good job!
